Casa de Indias is a gorgeously unique colonial home lavishly spread over four sweeping floors. Adobe like earthen walls give the home a warm and artistic feel and the many lush plants, dispersed thoughtfully both indoors and out, create a tropical oasis that is central yet nestled in seclusion. Located in Cartagena, this 10 bedroom home is perfect for extended families and groups of friends seeking solace from the hustle and bustle of the city during high season.


A rooftop terrace with a jacuzzi and chaise loungers overlooks the charismatic architecture of old town Cartagena. The view is dotted with palms and stretches the short distance to the horizon and expansive Atlantic ocean. Truly a bird’s perch above the center of activity, the rooftop is a refuge of inspiration and luxury.


Gloria de Zea, the director of Bogota’s Museum of Modern Art and the first wife of Fernando Botero gave this luxury Cartagena rental an unparalleled artistic pedigree. One of the first Cartagena houses to be restored in the 1980s, Casa de Indias was given an interior makeover by Lina Botero, the couple’s daughter, in 2013. Top art collectors and even Saudi princes have been captivated by Lina’s keen eye for beauty and the house has become known as a prime contender in the resurgence of Cartagena. The luxurious, yet authentic and artistic feeling of the home makes is a desirable destination for celebrities and people from all walks of life seeking a sanctuary of relaxation and seclusion.

Ideal forfamilies and groups of friends who would like a spacious stylish Caribbean villa (one of the largest villas in Cartagena)
